Hi flatline-uk and :)

I am just wondering if it is possible to find out what was burnt to a cd 3 months ago using the xp built in burner?

Not sure what you mean as Xp did not have an built in burner and other software such as Nero or Cd burner Xp was/is often used http://download.cnet...4-10409086.html also do you mean is there a record of what was burnt on the computer or what is on an actual disk?

I guess a burner was added.

to clarify, i was wondering if there is a record on the computer, of what was burnt to the CD-r.
if that makes sense.

many thanks

I''m confused also as all you would have to do is open the cd-r in windows explorer to see what is on it.
BTW WMP has the capability to burn since version 9 I think.

sorry i'm not being very clear. i'll try again.

approx 3-4 months ago i burnt a CD-r using a work PC.
the source of the file i burnt was stored on a usb flash drive.
i dragged this file onto the writable CD drive in 'my computer', then burnt the disc.

Now, i already know what is on the disk. but my concern is that the IT guys will be able to find some log or temporary files somewhere that will reveal to them what i did.

I hope this makes sense.

thanks for your replies so far. and the warm welcome.

Not that I know of but why worry if you didn't copy anything that should not have been copied.
